We open this year’s Feminism & Tech series with a focus on the importance of Feminist Consciousness in the conversation, with an introduction to the concept of Consciousness Raising (CR) and feminist critique of technology from Feminist Library’s* / Breaking the Frame’s** Gail Chester and Magda Oldziejewska. We are also inviting researchers from Met University, and speakers from inspirational #womenintech initiatives, including Inspiring Women’s*** Laura de Silva and AnitaB.org’s Assel Altayeva.
